Theme Demo – Download Now 670kb
I am pleased to announce that you can now download the brand new WordPress theme named “Olivia” direct from our website and soon from the official WordPress themes gallery.
It has been in development for a long time but good things come to those who wait!
Key features of the theme:
- Seven brilliant styles including a Grunge style and Magic style!
- Beautifully designed
- WordPress 2.6.3 compatible
- Widget ready!
- Built on the famous 960 grid system
- FamFamFam Silk Icons
- jQuery functions including text size modification
- Basic stylesheet for accessibility
- Thumbnail generation
To coincide with the release of the theme I have written a quick tutorial explaining how to use the features explained…
The theme is ready “out-of-the-box” but there are some features built into the theme which you may not know about upon installation.
- Stylesheet Selector
Olivia comes pre-built with SEVEN different styles to choose from. They include Red, Green, Blue, Grey, White, Grunge and Magic. To select which theme you would like to use simply login to your WordPress dashboard, click on the Design tab and then (as long as Olivia is the current theme) you should see a tab named Olivia Options. You will then be presented with the seven styles provided. Simply click on your desired style to enable it!
- Thumbnail Generator (requires GD library*)
To ensure your post images are the perfect size I have built a simple PHP thumbnail generator. To use it simply upload your image as usual using WordPress’ in built media uploader but copy and paste the image “Link URL” into the box below your write panel (see image right). The theme will automatically resize the image for your post!
*There is however a drawback with this. Your server must have GD Library installed. If your not sure about this simply login and click on Olivia Options under the Design tab. There will be a title further down notifying you if your ok or not.
That’s it! Your ready to make full use of your theme!
Please note that this is the very first full release of the theme and it may still have some hidden bugs somewhere. If you find any at all simply drop me an email or leave a comment (good or bad) and I will look into it immediately. The same goes for feature requests.
